Honestly, it doesn't cost much more than if I'd have done it. I'm not using my old parts which is where most of the extra cost comes from" that and the powder coating. Gotta love income tax return surprise is more accurate lol

Very nice so far Tom. Looks like we are both doing about the same build. I'm custom making a 5th injector kit for mine though based on gmtech John's old setup instead of the meth setup, which looks nicely done btw. Keep up the good work.

Wow I'm glad I read that about the valve cover. Looks like ill be tearing the valve cover off my coupe this weekend. I had it powder coated last year but only put about 400 miles on the car since install. I'm interested to see what my findings are.

As my priorities changed on December 22nd I was going to throw that 6758 on over the winter. Now it appears I will do it next winter.
I guess it's ok though as I will also pull the 4.55 then and have lnfwagonss build me a 4.05 the right way.

I went ahead and fixed all the factory oil leaks while I was at it. also did the cam sensor on the back, which I figured, hey if the front one leaks, back one probably does as well, so why not.
